the shark. the man who wrote the notorious sitcom in u.s. history, or episode i should say, defends what he did with the fawns. maybe she's right. the show starts right now. well, apparently the president thinks if we keep printing money we don't have, ignore the ongoing extraction that's plaguing our country, eventually the economy will turn around. forget fixing the system that keeps all the capital with the select few who gamble it or incentivize those with capital to take it out of the country? why would you do that? call it free trade. the president's latest proposal, i should say, a spending tree of $50 on new infrastructure spending. now that we don't need the infrastructure, it's interesting to spend the money we don't have while you leave a giant hole in the bucket seeping out of the country. the president's plan to rebuild 150,000 miles of roads, 4,000 miles of rail line. critics lining up calling the president's plan an ineffective one that will plunge us further into debt. of course, the republicans no more ready to address our real problems, just happy to take the job of screwi

against u.s. troops. jones continued to say only god's word would sway him. that word apparently came today from our guest or via our guest standing by, imam muhamma muhammad musri, standing by from the islamic society of central florida who says he has arranged a meeting between jones and imam rauf of the islamic center planned for two blocks from ground zero in new york city. jones described this as a deal to move that islamic center in new york and said then that not only was he canceling his koran burning saturday but that no one should burn any korans. that was what he said then. >> we are, of course, now against any other group burning korans obviously. we have accomplished our goal. we have accomplished what we feel god wants us to do. we would right now ask no one to burn korans. we are very, very strong on that. as strong as we were that they should burn korans. it is now not the time to do it. >> mr. jones was told, however, that new york organizers of that islamic center said they have not agreed to move it. jones was asked whether he felt tricked in exactly what he was tol
near ground zero and the anti-muslim sentiment in this country. is it enough to get us off this crazy train of hate and fear? >>> plus, what we should all be really worried about today, getting people back to work. what the president got right and what he got wrong when it comes to our economy. >>> also legalizing marijuana. it will end western civilization as we moe it, right? right? maybe not. it's the topic of our daily rant. tourre is in the house. the show starts right now. ♪ >> well in america today we're functioning on fear. the president trying to show leadership on the economy but hijacked by a wacky pastor from florida. using his first news conference since the spring to remind americans that we are all in this together. >> i've got muslims who are fighting in afghanistan. in the uniform of the united states armed services. and part of honoring their service is making sure they understand that we don't differentiate between them and us. it's just us. >> we heard from the president today what we should have heard a month ago before the boogeyman, islam, was allowed to take
if kerry can hear us at this point either. but again, this is this pastor terry jones. he's planning, as he say, to burn the koran. i think we've worked out the audio. let's listen in. >> i believe what has sometimes escaped the news media, we have also received quite a bit of support. just yesterday we got a phone call from a retired special force green beret, delta force. it's his opinion that people from the field, the special forces he told us are ç100% behind us. he was saying that it was there in yugoslavia when the radical muslims, and that is the element that we are aiming at. that is the element that we want for them to back down. he said he was there in yugoslavia when they burnt down 150 churches. he said he was there as a three-story building that was a hospital, a three-story building full of christians was burnt to the ground, and they were allowed to do nothing. because of international pressure, because of policies. they were allowed to do nothing. our military men who are trained to rescue lives, to save lives, to protect our country stood in front of a three-story hospit
the mosque there. and, of course, muslims do not want us to burn the koran. the imam has agreed to move the mosque. we have agreed to cancel our event on saturday. and on saturday, i will be flying up there to meet with him. >> all right, all right. time-out. folks, you can't believe a word this guy is saying. he's been shooting from the hip for days now. now, right now, nbc news is reporteding that there is no deal with the new york imam to move the cultural center away from where it was proposed here in manhattan. what's infuriating, really infuriating about all of this is that this -- the world basically has been held hostage by this pastor jones, a small-time lunatic zealot. this nut has gotten the president of the united states, the state department, the pentagon, the fbi, general petraeus, hillary clinton and interpol. it doesn't get any higher than that, does it? we have to really put this in perspective. this is an unparalleled example in my opinion in the information age of how a fly on the wall can suck the air out of the room to the point where the president of the united sta
money that you've got. come on. you are making this too easy. that does it for us tonigh we will see you again tomorrow night. for us tonight. >>> there's lots to add to what you've seen on our show. "the ed show" is up next. good night. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show." tonight from new york, these stories on the table. and hitting my hot buttons at this hour. breaking news, the psychopastor in florida says he's canceled his plan to burn the koran. but the story is far from over. he's claiming he's cut a deal to move the so-called ground zero mosque in new york. folks, you can't believe a word this guy says. my commentary on that, plus rapid fire response all coming up. >>> democrats, i want you to pay attention and listen carefully to how governor ed rendell of pennsylvania has been hammering the republicans. he just said we can't turn our country over to the "froot loops and crazies." i kind of love that kind of talk. he'll bring the straight talk here in the bottom of the hour. >>> and glenn beck and sarah palin are restoring dishonor in my opinion t
" for now. thanks for being with us. countdown with keith olbermann starts now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? going out with a whim per, not a burn. the threat of the burning of the koran equates with afghanistan. the president hits several high notes. >> part of my concern is to make sure we don't start having a whole bunch of folks all across the country think this is the way to get attention. >> blowing the whistle on the gop's perpetual stall on every remedy, on every reform, on every relief. retiring republican ohio senator george voinovich will back obama's small business proposals. we don't have time for messaging, we don't have time anymore. this country is really hurting. >> what i've got is the republicans holding middle class tax relief hostage because they're insisting we've got to give tax relief to millionaires and billionaires. >> don't ask, don't tell, unconstitutional because of a lawsuit filed by republicans. the form of irony, but still a hoot. our guest, lieutenant dan choy. worse, suspected from school because his eyes were bloodshot, o
, it turns out this is important to us. what i've said to prime minister netanyahu is that given so far the talks are moving forward in a constructive way, it makes sense to extend that moratorium so long as the talks are moving in a constructive way. because, ultimately, the way to solve these problems, is for the two sides to agree what's it going to be, israel? what's it going to be, the state of palestinian. and if you can get that agreement, then you can start constructing anything that the people of israel see fit. in undisputed areas. now, i think the politics for prime minister netanyahu are very difficult. his coalition, i think, there are a number of members of his coalition who said we don't want to continue this. and one of the things that i've said to president abbas is, you've got to show the israeli public that you are serious and constructive in these talks so that the politics for prime minister netanyahu, if he were to extend the settlements moratorium, would be a little bit easier. and, you know, one of the goals i think that i've set for myself and for my team is to
us with more. >>> the first sign of hope from iran that at least one of those young american hikers might be freed after a year in a tehran jail. >>> and today i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. >>> the fbi just met with pastor terry jones, but despite widespread condemnation, worldwide condemnation and condemnation from the white house, the u.s. military, the state department, there is no sign yet that he is backing down from his plan to burn 200 copies of the holy koran. >> our burning of the koran is to call the attention that something is wrong. something is wrong. it is possibly time for us in a new way to actually stand up, confront terrorism. there is something very much wrong with our policies. >> nbc's kerry sanders is live outside the dove world outreach center in gainesville, florida. kerry, pastor jones told you this is not a stunt. and now we have the president saying it is. what's the reaction in gainesville as all of this is approaching? >> well, outside of this pasteur here, we're right next to a cow pasteur, outside the community there is a fair amount of anger
, and so the voter is putting the best possible face on their vote here, so why -- they tell us that the bush policies were unpopular. in fact, it is the second most unpopular attitude for a congressional candidate to have. >> so they are being optimistic, a rosy scenario of republicanism. >> correct. it's the same thing that barack obama benefited from in 2008. >> wow. >> people put the most positive -- independents thought he's going to be a moderate. liberals thought he would be the great liberal. they became the hope candidate and many ways this idea of a new republican congress, voters are being hopeful, even if they haven't seen any hard evidence to prove it otherwise. >> you know, chuck, it's like one of those old santa claus masks that used to be in the store windows that always seemed to be looking at you, you know, when you're walking by. that guy is with me. >> give me that toy. >> john heilemann, the same question to you. do you take the same view that when people, voters are saying, oh, they are not going back to their old ways. they have whole new republican approa
. it's quite obvious it's not just the islamic world that is concerned about this. theç u.s. military leaders are concerned enough they have raised the ante by speaking about it, pulling off the effort here by addressing it. their concerns is when the korans are burned it may cause americans in uniform danger in other parts of the world. the burning of the koran is a catalyst to starting more unprovoked violence again americans in uniform. i asked the pastor here about that. what would he think, if he burned these korans and an american was targeted. this is what he had to say. >> yeah, of course. we would feel terrible. that would be a disaster. that would be beyond words. but we are not responsible for that. why don't we point the finger where it belongs. they point the finger at us. why don't we point the finger at them, the people who did it. >> will he burn the korans, that's the big question. i asked him that. he did say this was a message from god for him to burn them. perhaps he'll get another message from his god telling him not to burn them. then, of course, there's the city
jolie told reporters, i have no words. leaders from the state department and the u.s. military to the head of his laumic society of north america are also calling on pastor terry jones to reconsider. >> i'm heartened by the clear, unequivocal of this disrespectful, disgraceful act that has come from american religious leaders of all faiths. >> top u.s. commanders in afghanistan were warn the koran building could put u.s. soldiers at risk. kerry sanders is at the site in gainesville, florida. what is going to go on saturday? is this group going to still burn the koran? are they able to do it? >> this is called the dove outreach center and the pastor jones, as you mentioned, has a congregation maybe of 50. they claim they're going to gather in the field here in front of the chunrch and they'r going to set up a stage and make speeches and then they're going to take the korans, which they have already purchased. some they say were donated. they're going to put them, they say, into a pit, light them on fire and burn them. but there are hurdles that they're going to have to clear tha
the offensive against al qaeoda. >> they may seek to strike fear in us but they are no match for our resilience. we do not seccumb to fear nor will we squander the optimism that has always us as a people. >> nbc's mike viqueira is live at the white house for us. good afternoon you to, mike. earlier in the day as you know the president acknowledged it is a very difficult time for the untry but what was the message here? >> well, alex, first all, you know, not only is it a day of rembrances and commemoration but the president has declared this a daye of service as well. and to that end the president after he spoke with the pentagon went to a school, middle school here, the ron brown middle school in the rtheast quadrant of the city, and helped out for aew minutes painting a wall, help aing with renovations, and joe biden the vice president did the same or is scheduled to do the same in new york city. you're right, alex. today the president has a lot of -- a lot on his plate not only in observing 9/11 but in the context of which the 9/11 anniversary falls this year. there is the mosque controver
to kill us. that's after the hate e-mails pored into them. and folks who say the flight 93 memorial in pennsylvania resembles the islamic crescent. the outrage. the justice department currently investigating anti muslim incidents in at least five u.s. cities. whether it's muslims, blacks, gay people, jews, you pick it. history shows when americans or any group of people are down on their luck, they tend to lash out with violence. they tend to try to find the boogeyman the least like they are to blame for it. politicians happy to help. take a look at unimemployment over the last 40 years in the country. now look at the same graph with a crime rate plotted. when unemployment goes up, so too do things like crime or, for that matter, social hate. now experts are in fear 2010 is preparing to show a speak needily following the one we saw following 9/11 in 2001. disenfranchisement with both political parties. they are crushing the country for your benefit by controlling your government. why do americans pick innocent scapegoats, random muslims of the world for their anger, instead of rejec

"the daily rundown" starts now. >>> this is a recruitful bonanza for al qaeda. >> the pressure building. the president weighs in on that florida pastor's plan to burn the koran. >>> 54 days before the critical midterm elections. why's the chairman of the republican party in guam? >>> get this. football great tom brady involved in what's described as a serious car accident in boston this morning. >>> it's thursday, september 9th, 2010. i'm chuck todd. savannah guthrie is on assignment. brady's accident occurred hours ago. but first, let's get to the rundown. >>> president obama came out swinging in cleveland defending the presidency and ramping up criticism of the man who would be speaker and potentially his chief adder is vary john boehner. athna jones on duty for us at the white house this morning. so, trying to find somebody to run agains
think that could have been the case here. >> again, thank you for telling the world about kyler and us, too. >> thank you so much for having thank you for telling the world about us too. >> thank you so much for having me. the 141st day of the deep water horizons disaster in the gulf. i'm keith olbermann, good night and good luck. ladies and gentlemen, here is rachel maddow. good evening. >> thank you and thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. happy day after labor day, everybody. as the day after labor day, today is officially two things. it is the first day on which it is no longer okay to wear white. i'm talking to you. i can see you. it's also this. >> unofficial end of summer means the 2o 10 campaign season is in full swing. >> kicking into high gear with the official mark of labor day. >> it's the kickoff of the campaign season. >> labor day signals the start of the campaign season. >> welcome to the campaign season. >> i don't know why it's true, but it's always true n. any election year no matter what else happened all year, for some reason, labor day or t
to the 2,752 victims killed when terrorists hijacked four commercial planes and attacked the u.s. in lower manhattan, 9/11 families gather at zuccotti park, adjacent toground zero. throughout the morning, as has become tradition, victims of moments l be read and of silence will be marked when each plane hit and each tower fell. at the pentagon, president obama delivers remarks and participates in a wreath-laying ceremony at the memorial site. and in shanksville, pennsylvania, where united flight 93 crashed, first lady michelle obama, along with former first lady, laura bush, attend a ceremony to honor the passengers who foughback. meanwhile, plans to rebuild at ground zero are moving forward. the centerpiece, one world trade center, is expected to be completed by 2013. but with each construction step forward,here remains a connection to the past. steel beams pulled from the ground zero rubble were permanently installed this week at the entrance of the national september 11th memorial and museum, slated to be finished in 2012. >> it is going to be a memorial that we will all be proud of and
, whether they actually believe there's a moral equivalency there or they don't and they're using it for political purposes. either way, whichever it is, this is not just bad domestic politics for the president, and it is and they know it, for a variety of reasons, including it takes him off the economy and divides him from democrats, which is a big problem on a range of issues, but i almost resist talking about this as a political issue. this is a national security crisis. both of these issues are. you have general petraeus getting involved in a domestic matter of the first amendment issue shows the extraordinary extent to which people in the military are -- men and women overseas think this is a big enough deal, and to have it to be brought into domestic politics and inflamed by republicans, again, out of principle, maybe, out of political purposes maybe, whatever the reason is really a national and international tragedy. and unfortunately the president, for a variety of reasons, is too weak on his own to deal with it. >> i think you're right. howard? >> well, sitting in the pre
. >> good evening, keith. thank you for that. thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. plenty of chaos to sort out from this day of news and not just the hardcore book burning wing nuttery chaos coming out of florida. there's also the republican senate primary now newly starring sarah palin and a tea party candidate who says that abstinence is not enough. we all must always abstain from ourselves. as well if you know what i mean and one of the most political fake campaigns and the rachel maddow staff vote for the most unhinged campaign speech and it had a lot of competition. that's coming up this hour. we begin with the extremist christian pastor in florida who was planning to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11 by burning copies of the koran. he has now changed his plans twice. pastor claimed in a press conference this afternoon he was canceling his koran burning because the imam behind the planned islam cultural center in downtown manhattan agreed to move the project away from the hollow grounds of the orlando burlington court factcy building, blocks away from the wo
to the town. describe to us what you have seen. >> people really are here with hair on their arms burned off and intense wall of heat. everyone was running for their cars and out in the streets to get a source for the fire that quickly spread. it was difficult to outrun and many people jumped in their cars and barely made it out in the nick of time. no one has been able to go back into the blast zone and everyone is unsure who made it out, who didn't make it out. there really is a bunch of confusion. folks are trying to look for answers and they are hoping to get that at the press conference that should start in a few minutes. >> miguel, thank you so much. we want to let people know we will take that news conference live when it happens. >>> florida pastor terry jones has issued a new ultimatum and the clock is ticking, literally. the man at the center of the new york mosque controversy, imam feisal was told to call them and let them know whether or not the proposed cultural center will be moved further from ground zero. here's what had he to say. >> it's crystal clear. it's 1:20 right now a
on over an hour. the term wide ranging is going to be used a lot. >> how about long-winded. >> we had a ton of topics, the first focused on the economy, one or two on the pastor, and more on the growing phobia with islam around the country. i would say he was most passionate at the end when he made a case for the right and religious freedom and for the rights of muslim americans to have the same rights as everyone else in the country. the passion he showed there was probably greater than he answered on any other question. frankly it's interesting. he mixed it. it was passionate and mixed in with patriotism in a way even some of his critics on this issue will say it was a very eloquent answer to say the least. >> in contrast to that, let's see what his passion, quote, unquote, was, when talking about stimulus and job growth. let's watch. if you want the same kind of skewed policies that led us to this crisis, republicans are ready to offer those. if you want policies that are moving us out, even though you're frustrated, change isn't happening as fast as you would like, then i think de
. this is a huge story out west. so we will keep our monitors on the video coming in to us and the live pictures and we will dip back in and out "morning joe" this morning. again, a huge explosion ripping through a san francisco neighborhood late yesterday. the fire still raging at this hour. >>> good morning, it is friday, september 10th. i'm mika brzezinski. joe is off this morning but willie is taking care of mommy this morning. with us on the set is all of these boys. national political correspondent for new york magazine, john heilemann been here for three days. >> i haven't left. i slept here. >> awkward. at some point, he'll go. but he is the co-author of "game change." donnie deutsche is here. >> hello, darling. >> you look okay. >> that -- a pause is better than an insult. it's donnie deutsche is here, that scum or something like that. >> it's all about you, donnie? everything that i do, he thinks it might just be about me somehow. it might have been an insult which really means she likes me. i like that one. >> get to the insults. >> thank you for that. >> donnie looks sharp. he either
of us here at nbc news. thanks for joining us. >>> nine years later, the nation marks the anniveary of the 9/11 attacks. but could two brewing controversies overshadow this year's events? >>> a new twist in the saga of that florida preacher o the man who says he may burn korans today is now in new york. what is he doing here? >>> more stories out this morning from people who lived to tell about that massive fire near san francisco. >>> some rays of light. new numbers suggest the economy may not be as bad as people think, but where are the jobs? >>> good morning, everyone, i'm alex whit and welcome to "msnbc saturday." and today marks nine years since the september 11th terror attacks and hundreds will gather at memorials this morning for those who lost their lives that day. special services will be held at the three sites where hijacked planes crashed in new york, washington, and pennsylvania. ut along with this year's events, there's also controversy. nbc's michelle franzen is live near the world trade center site in newth york city. michelle, with a good saturday morning to you. w
, the special forces he told us, are 100% behind us. >> this has turned into an international controversy. general david petraeus has warned that koran burn willing actually endanger troops and civilians abroad. tt vatican, secretary of constituent hillary clinton, even angelina jolie has condemned the plan. kerry sanders now from the site of the planned koran burning. >> so the church here in central florida says, chris, that they are going forward with their plan to burn the koran on the anniversary of 9/11 on saturday. it's a time when the city of gainesville will be filled with more than 90,000 additional residents coming here for a football game between the university of florida and the university of south florida down the street in tampa. so the police are not releasing what their security measures are going to be. but they have said local, state and federal, that's the department of homeland security, are involved in preparing to respond if it's needed. of course, the greatest concern is that if he and his congregation burn the koran, it might elicit violence. of course, the other
with no because i'm not. if god told us to do it, then i guess he could tell us to do something different. >> this morning, general ray ordeearno also expressed his concern of american troops if this burning takes place. >> i think there will be some backlash and i think we have seen some already. >> kerry sanders is in florida. this church, if it tries to burn the koran, it would be violating an ordinance, right? >> yes. the city has an ordinance, not related to burning of korans, but just burning anything in your yard. they have a field here and the ordinance is rather specific. it allows, for instance, kids to go camping and have a little camp fire in their yard. but, it has to be twigs and branches. the city police department says that they have interpreted the ordinance that if they were to burn the books that the ink in the koran would be a hazardous material and, so, what they're planning to do is if they decide to come out here and burn the koran as they say they're going to do on the anniversary of 9 /11 the gainesville fire department will be on alert. if they try to spark it, t
, whether they were delivering a message from somewhere within the u.s. government. as i stand here right now and step out of the way and zoom down and look at the front of the church here, there's an association of pastors who have come to this area to try to meet with the minister to tell him that they believe he is wrong. that as you noted as secretary gates says this is putting americans in uniform in jeopardy, but also the pastors are concerned about missionaries and churches that have opened in countries that have freedom innocently large muslim populations. their concern, of course, is this will incite people to attack those missionaries or their churches, and that the violence will spread if there is violence. in the meantime, in an interview that i did with the pastor, i talked to him about what he thought was the most important part of why he was doing this, why burn the koran? he said he's trying to send a message to the extremists in the islamic religion who use the koran against the united states. who want to establish what is known as sharia law. you'll hear about how much h
their factory and equipment investment in the u.s., and i think all of those are about trying to rebuild and put us on a long run growth path and i think it's fairly important. >> in addition to that, when you look at the fact that we need 30 million jobs, not 10 or 100,000 jobs a month, we need to be adding hundreds of thousands of jobs a month just to break even considering what we've been through, and when you look at that reality and you look at these approaches knowing that we, again, in my view, and i'd be interested to hear your thoughts, we have a structural problem, how do you address the mass need for employment with a structure in this country that still incentivizes capital in many cases to leave the country to be used for either speculation or something else? >> well, look, i -- i agree with the sentiment that we want to make a level playing field. we certainly don't want a tax code that encourages people to ship jobs overseas or anything like that. we want to try to encourage real investments here in this country. that's the point of this policy with infrastructure, are r & d, with
with us. right now it's time for "the ed show" with ed schulze. >>> good evening, measures. welcome to "the ed show." tonight from minneapolis, these stories on the table and hitting my hot becomes at this hour. president obama cut through the burning questions today in his news conference and kept his eye on the ball. he's focused on jobs and not some nut job pastor down in florida. commentary on that coming up in a moment. >>> the nation's leading hate monger, newt gingrich is, recklessly comparing the psychopastor's plot to ground zero imam's motives. he was back at it on fox news this morning and beat the drum with a big speech today. the reverend barry lind was front and center with him and he'll sound off late mer in the show. >>> lizz winstead gives her take on the beckster's 9/11 event with caribou barbie. this is the story that has me fired up tonight. president obama kept his eye on the ball and focused on the bushing crisis in this country. folks, i'm not talking about burning the koran. i'm talking about jobs. the president made it very clear that he knows americans are
department has put u.s. embassies around the world on alert, ordered them to review their security before any violence against america erupts. and the fbi reportedly is collecting information about the plan to burn the koran. officials may have no power to stop it, given jones' constitutional right to free expression. president obama lambasted jones' plans with a reminder about america's fundamental beliefs. >> i just hope he understands that what he's proposing to do is completely contrary to our values as americans. >> and politicians from both ends of the spectrum slam the plan. sarah palin called it an unnecessary provocation. senator john mccain begged jones not to do it via twitter. but a group known as the agenda project has released a video accusing them of stirring out fervor with their own fight against a planned mosque near ground zero. and that fervor may be growing. the fbi is investigating vandalism at a phoenix mosque. blamed a fire in tennessee on an arsonist. hartford, connecticut was planning to allow local imams to give a muslim prayer at the start of the council meetings,

from greece. >> oh, gosh! yes, that's us. >>> good morning. it's wednesday, september 8th. welcome to "morning joe." you're here and awake. that's good. hi, willie. >> i'm here. >> asking for too much. >> mike barnicle, and msnbc chief washington correspondent norah o'donnell, who is co-author of a new cookbook! it's called "baby love healthy easy delicious meals for your mom and toddler." there are meals in there for mom and dad and it's really healthy. if you're lucky, i will feed you a little goop this morning. you need to get the recipes out of this. it's good. >> i don't need a recipe. i get a snickers bar to my 2-year-old and he washes it down with a box of doughnuts. >> easy and beautiful. i'm sorry. what were you saying? were you talking? >> i give jack a snickers bar. i find it gives that 2-year-old the extra push he needs to get over like. >> preschool or whatever it is. >> have a munchkin! >> this book is so basic. perhaps even you could understand it and yet you make really good high-end food for your baby. >> her book is like number 10 on amazon of baby cookbooks. >> i
which i would prefer, if they believe there's a moral equivalency there or they don't and they're using it for political purposes. either way, whichever it is, it's not just bad domestic politics for the president, and it is for a variety of reasons including it takes him off the economy and divides the democrats on a range of issues. but i almost resist talking about this as a political issue. this is a national security crisis.f both of these issues are. you have general petraeus getting involved in that domestic matter of the first amendment issue shows the extraordinary extent to which people in the military are -- men and women overseas think this is a big deal. and to have it to be brought into domestic politics and inflamed by republicans, again, out of principle, maybe, out of political purposes maybe, whatever the reason is really a national and international tragedy. and unfortunately the president, foa variety of reasons, is too weak on his own to deal with it. >> i think you're right. >> this is so rare to say here's my religious faith, i have to put it out as a shield. here
lie to me. >> that's a hard thing to put together. we're used to dealing in objective facts. how do you get the facts from a guy, pastor jones who won't even say who this man is who he talked to? who is this man who may have tricked him? >> i take it was is the imam from central florida, muhammad musry he was meeting with. but i asked him, like who were you on the phone with? no names. look, doesn't it fit in many ways the way much of this has played out in terms of i had a very long interview with pastor jones and tried to get to some very specifics with him why he wanted to burn the koran. what specifically was in the koran that was most offensive to him. and he hadn't even read the koran. he basically admitted maybe he had looked at a page but primary what he said was there's no mention of jesus christ in the koran as the savior. anybody who understands religions understands that would not be in there in the same way it's not in the tora. i said are you going to start burning the tora, he said no. a lot of this has been very confusing in terms of why he said he was doing this and
's operated as his father's pawn. he's accusing him of conning us to elect him president. what do you make of newt, howard? >> i've been covering newt for many years. he's a bomb thrower. he's a guy who knows the weak point to attack. what's interesting to me here is he feels free to say anything at this point. it's a kind of free fire zone within the conservative movement. and newt, who's always trying tu say the most outrageous thing and that goes back many, many years, now has moved from saying outrageous things about the ethics of the house members in the democratic leadership 15, 18 years ago, to saying these thin about a man that newt himself has no evidence for what he's alleging here.te he really has absolutely none. his facts are wrong. as mr. weigepointed out on his page and i'm just really not surprised, but kind of depressed by it. >> david, you covered this kind of spiritual territory. ideological territory. he's accusing as basically a zombie. saying his father hated the british white guys. his son is kind of a zombie like figure. in fact governed by a ghost. this is the kind
rocks at passing american con voice. and there were protests in indonesia. u.s. general david petraeus has warned the anger is so intense, the pastor's actions could endanger u.s. troops in afghanistan and could actually end up helping the taliban. nbc's tom aspell is in kabul, afghanistan. what's the big concern if the pastor goes through on his threat to burn the koran? >> well, contessa, simply that afghans will react violently to it. now, general david petraeus in an e-mail in response to questions from the associated press about the affair said today, images of a koran burning would undoubtedly be used by extremists on both sides, in afghanistan and around the world to enflame public opinion and to incite violence. he went further, he said, burning of a koran would put the safety of our troops and american civilians in afghanistan at risk, and would also compromise the mission here. i think what the general is saying is that afghans are in danger of going into the streets and turning against any american military they see, any american civilians. there is precedent for unrest like
